Where is the  Microsoft Mail client in Server 2008 R2 Standard.

I don't have a place to configure email in this server.  I have read articles to install the Desktop Experience feature.  I tried installing it twice.  This is a 64 bit server.  If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

    There isn't one.
    You will need to use a 3rd party product of download and install live mail from the Microsoft site.
